    Accepting The Truth Of Female Superiority

    As a heterosexual male brought up with the traditional values of patriarchy, I was imprinted early in life with the belief that women were the "weaker sex". In spite of this indoctrination, I couldn't help being intrigued by the concept of a role-reversal. As I grew up, I began...

    She's earned it.

    Men, at one time even myself treat woman so bad sometimes (way too much). They need to be cherished. Remember, that it's someones daughter, sister, mother. It is hard to pin-point why women deserve to be treated better then men (most times), they just should. Respect is just part...

    I believe men and women should be respectful to

    one another. but the way I have seen the males treat women on here is disgusting. makes me wonder how they treat women offline. Don't get me wrong, I do talk to some fellows that are very polite and respectful. but I had a older man old enough to be my father, straight up ask me...

    Real women are classy,

    strong, independent, loyal and loveable and one thing about them is they know they deserve better.

    I come from a cultured family.

    What I'm about to share does not mean I don't love my nuclear family, it's something I've grown used to and accepted. I want to share this because I feel like people aren't aware of how often this happens and how harmful it can be. Like I said, I come from a very cultured...

    I think people should just be courteous/polite

    to other people. Respect is earned, whether you have a pair of mammaries or not. Men use to demand respect from women and now women demand respect from men. Why can't we just accept that we all need to try and be nice without being dicks about it? If the person is an...

    I've seen some extremely inappropriate remarks

    pasted by men on here to ladies, some invited some not. I think if a guy wants a decent woman that will respect him he needs to start by respecting her.

    Why Retaliate?

    Why do men feel they need to retaliate when women show a stupid reaction or lack of attention towards them? Why do they then turn really ugly because a woman has said something senselessly? Why do men want to be as ugly as some women desire to be? We women can really be cruel...

    This is a rather vague topic.

    Very general maybe. To get, one must give. Respect,as is trust, must be earned,it will never be given freely. We men draw conclusions swift . Normally by jumping to them ! We will show respect to the woman that can draw her bow and place her arrow in the center circle from 75...

    This experience would seem odd from a man

    who has Charlie Sheen's image on his profile. And it is also a question I get asked often, why him? My answer is why not him? His character in 2 & 1/2 men and Anger Management drinks the finest alcohol, screws around, gambles and has the most fun all the time. Essentially what...

    I agree, but only if it's reciprocal.

    Respect begets respect. No one should ever resort to violence though.

    Too many men objectivise women

    for sex and little else! We are only useful for two things, sex and the washing up! It's demeaning that they still don't see us with any sense of equality of worth.

    Deserving Of Respect?

    However, I also think

    that all women should be respectful towards men. Of course, there are those of BOTH genders who don't really deserve respect, but for people who aren't in THAT category of person, you should respect them. Stop it with this "Women are better than men" or "Men are better than...

    For me, women and lightning are very much alike.

    You admire their striking beauty, you wonder at their creation, you fear their power and at the same time, respect them overall.

    I don't completely agree with this.

    I think everybody should just be courteous and polite. Respect is earned. Mutual respect is between a younger and then elder. It's mutual as they are older and most likely have more experience than you do. But if you aren't going to earn respect but just expect it you don't...

    One thing that reminds me of women is sacrifice.

    Women have been sacrificing their lives, goals and interests for the sake of their men and family from generations. Women were always treated bad without any respect. But I feel mens attitude towards women should change. I would like to share my real life experience with you...

    I am kind of old fashion, I guess, but I think women are special. I believe in chivalry, opening doors or pulling out a chair for a lady. At very least not treating them like a piece of meat, it is one thing to tell a woman how beautiful she looks, but constant sexual remarks in...
